How To Handle The Snow While Still Looking Chic

There are two very different types of cold weather. The first is the type where you're forced to dress practically, but you can still get away with showing a bare ankle or be decently comfortable in a V-neck sweater, sans scarf. Those are those brisk-but-sunny days when you can embrace the chill and still look cute in the process. But later in the season, we experience a type of cold that doesn't screw around. Every inch of skin needs to be covered to protect ourselves from that subzero windchi...

Kylie Jenner Trying to Teach Stormi to Say "Kylie Cosmetics" Is Freakin' Adorable

Kylie Jenner is passing on her love of makeup to her nine-month-old daughter, Stormi Webster. On Nov. 18, the 21-year-old beauty mogul shared a video of her little one on Instagram. She tried to teach Stormi how to say "Kylie Cosmetics" as she held an eye shadow palette. Now, Stormi's less than a year old, so her go-to word is understandably "da da," but everyone gets an "A" for effort all around. Watch the video above to see the heart-melting cuteness for yourself. If she does grow up to be...

New Forbes Article on How Loneliness And Longing For Connection Are Affecting Today’s Leaders

Loneliness isn’t something that people like to acknowledge, but it’s a real issue for many people today. Many leaders are so busy that they don’t even realize that they are in fact lonely. That’s a problem because loneliness is a “super stressor” that makes it difficult to perform at your best. In a new article that I wrote for Forbes, I describe how loneliness is affecting today’s leaders and why we all need to take steps to address the issue in our lives and organizations.

A Persian Popinjay. A Review of the Film Bohemian Rhapsody

The Demands of the Narrative The film opens with a close-up of star Rami Malek’s eye, a circlet of pale blue-grey iris clearly visible around a wide black pupil. The actor probably chose to eschew the tinted contact lenses that would have given him Freddie’s chocolate eyes because he found them uncomfortable. But I like to think of this discrepancy in eye color, in retrospect, as an early warning to viewers. To have a chance of enjoying the film, you must accept that it’s not in any sense a fait...

How to Accept Your Partner’s Flaws

Once the heady chemicals of new love — which transform one’s sweetheart into the very picture of human perfection — wear off, each partner discovers that no matter how compatible they are, there is a least one thing, and sometimes several, that each dislikes in the other. Each possesses some habit, behavior, or personality quirk that annoys, infuriates, and/or disappoints the other person.   As the relationship goes on, the pair may remain very much in love, but their respective idiosyncrasies ...

Review: Uberrime dildos (Splendid & Helios Sun God)

When I was but a wee sex toy reviewer, every new sex toy material was a treat. Not yet jaded by years of masturbatory ordeals, my vag was wowed by the smoothness of glass, the heft of stainless steel, the beauty of wood, the silkiness of silicone. Then I experienced luscious dual-density silicone, a true turning point. I quickly crowned it my favorite soft material and proceeded to stuff myself silly with dildos made out of it. That was 8 years ago, that glorious time of squishy exploration, s...

How to Be Calm: One Lesson Too Many of Us Learn Too Late

On a chilly evening 18 years ago, after spending nearly every waking minute with Angel for eight straight days, I knew I had to tell her just one thing.  So late at night, just before she fell asleep, I whispered it in her ear.  She smiled … the kind of smile that makes me smile back.  And she said, “When I’m 75, and I think about my life and what it was like to be young, I hope I can remember this very moment.” A few seconds later she closed her eyes and fell asleep.  The room was peaceful … a...
